Community Assessment & Resource Center (CARC)
is celebrating 20 Years of Juvenile Justice Reform in San Francisco!
Huckleberry's CARC staff
program for youth, ages 11-17, who are arrested for misdemeanors or certain felonies.

With a focus on positive youth development, CARC helps youth avoid detention and further involvement in the juvenile justice system. Thirty percent of all arrested youth in San Francisco are served by CARC. SF Police General Orders state that CARC must be contacted for all juvenile arrest cases.

CARC is one of the programs credited with reducing juvenile detention bookings by 75% over the past 20 years, with juvenile hall less than 25% full today.

About Huckleberry's CARC
CARC provides a community-based setting in which case managers from Huckleberry, Juvenile Probation, the Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department, and community-based organizations work together to address the root causes of arrest and work with youth and their families to plan for a more promising future.  CARC clients re-engage in school, secure jobs, and participate in positive recreational activities. Last year, 271 youth received CARC services and 72% were not rearrested within a year following program completion.
